I'm not anal because I sail, I sail because I'm anal. What other sport has two competitors on an 18 mile course finishing within 15 secs after 2 hours. Where the difference between winning and losing is less than a degree of pointing or tacking 15 secs behind or ahead of a windshift? Now granted I do not race (as of yet ). But the perfection that can be found in simplicity is what drew me to sailing...Yes I am a reformed powerboater.
